LLANIDLOES FiOEAL FETE. The seventh annual show o! the Llanidloes Horti- calturai Society took place on Wednesday, and was in every sense of the word a complete success. Favoured with fine and pleasant weather, the natural result being that the field was thronged with people. The exhibits were placed in a huge tent, and taken as a whole were thought to surpass those of any previous year. Although this event is one of the last of its kind to occur in the county, it was by no means the least important, and certainly was the most enter- taining. The programme was swelled with several new features, and altogether was of a diversifying character. Probably nothing contributed to the sue. 8338 of a show more than efficient arrangements, and at Llanidloes thi'e were executed in a manner which secured praise on every hand. The competitors in several of the floral classes were rather sparse, but the show was a distinct advance of anything yet at- tempted by the Society. The cottagers' classes were all keenly contested, their produce being worthy of highest praise. Division C, open to gardeners, brought forth much competition, as was the case in the honorary exhibits. The displays of Mr John Davies, Summerfield Park, were excellent, and Mr George Thomas's (Tremynfa) contributions to the show were in fine condition. Messrs Richard Brick and John Oliver, both of Newtown, and Mr E. Bolas, Moat Lane, and Mr Richard Jerman, Llanid- loes, all gained honourable distinctions. Messrs W. Clibran and Son, florists, of Altrincham, were awarded a prize for their display of apples and pears of the finest quality. The exhibition of roots and other farm produoe was one of the most pleasing features of the show, and was of a character, in ex. tent and general excellence, aa would do credit to any country show. The opinion of a well-known farmer, eminently qualified to express an opinion, and who acted as judge, was that the root show was the best he had seen within the county. The dog class secured good entries, the setter breed un- doubtedly claiming prominence. The winner of the collie class was deemed by the judge a splendid ani- mal. A special prize was awarded to Mr J, Rowley Jones, Hafren House, Newtown, for his setter, Prince Llewellyn" and a silver cup, given by the Sunlight Soap Coy., for the best dog in the show was awarded to a fine St. Bernard, Leander." The horses and turn-outs were to the fore, and those singled out for distinction were worthy of the prizes. The sheep dog trials never fail to interest, and both the open and local competition secured full entries. The dogs were allowed fifteen minutes in which to fetch three sheep from a given point, and together with its master drive the animals through four nar- row spaces ;nto a pen in the middle of a field. The large number of spectators watched the dogs work with evident interest, and encouraged, the shepherd by frequent rounds of applause. Tilting and other feats which required dexterity to accomplish took place. The football tournament for silver medals brought six rival teams into the field, and each round was followed by numerous lovers of the game. The Newtown Band was present the whole of the day, and discoursed an excellent variety of music. Mr Edward Davies, J.P., of Llandinam, and Mr James Grant, Penyrallt, efficiently filled the offices of presi- dent and vice-president respectively. The Bucoess of the fete is due to the individual exertions of the whole of the Committee, Messrs Wm. Proudfoot, as chairman, R. Morgan, vice-chairman, E. D. Davies, treasurer, Alf. J.
